Joe Lieberman says either Democrats fall in line behind George W. Bush or else he’s voting for John McCain:

“I’m open to supporting a Democrat, Republican, or even an Independent if there’s a strong one,” the U.S. Senator from Connecticut told “Fox News Sunday.” . . .

Asked about the current field of Democrat contenders for the presidency, all of whom have strong opposition to Bush’s Iraq policy, Lieberman said, “You make a decision based on a whole range of issues. But obviously, the positions that some candidates have taken in Iraq troubles me. Obviously, I will be looking at what positions they take in the larger war against Islamist terrorism.”

Do I need to go drag up all the times back in 2006 when Lieberman and his supporters urged Democrats not to make too big a deal out of disagreements on Iraq? I don’t necessarily think Lieberman is wrong about this. If I were in the Bush/Cheney/McCain Crazy Zone I’m not sure I could stomach voting for a reasonable candidate either.
